Description: The “digital natives” of the 21st century get very restless when they cannot use their tech tools whenever they want, especially after the summer break. They seem to get more restless when assigned to use pencil and paper to complete some task; thus, the products can be lifeless and contrived. This “digital immigrant” also seems to get a little restless when she has to grade 120 essays at a time, some of which are all but illegible. Using Photo Story 3, students can develop and showcase their comprehension of literary works and their creativity in personal and analytical writing. This session will give instructions for creating Photo Story 3 stories and share samples lessons for using Photo Story and assessment resources for assessing the students’ project.
Handouts: Session participants will receive handouts detailing steps for creating Photo Stories, lesson plan suggestions, and assessment resources.
